Calculate another triangle


How did we calculate this triangle?

1. Input data entered: cathetus a and hypotenuse c

a = 200 ; ; c = 3280 ; ;

2. From cathetus a and hypotenuse c we calculate cathetus b - Pythagorean theorem:

c**2 = a**2+b**2 ; ; b = sqrt{ c**2 - a**2 } = sqrt{ 3280**2 - 200**2 } = 3273.897 ; ;
Now we know the lengths of all three sides of the triangle and the triangle is uniquely determined. Next we calculate another its characteristics - same procedure as calculation of the triangle from the known three sides SSS.

a = 200 ; ; b = 3273.9 ; ; c = 3280 ; ;

3. The triangle circumference is the sum of the lengths of its three sides

p = a+b+c = 200+3273.9+3280 = 6753.9 ; ;

4. Semiperimeter of the triangle

s = fraction{ o }{ 2 } = fraction{ 6753.9 }{ 2 } = 3376.95 ; ;

5. The triangle area - from two legs

T = fraction{ ab }{ 2 } = fraction{ 200 * 3273.9 }{ 2 } = 327389.68 ; ;

6. Calculate the heights of the triangle from its area.

h _a = b = 3273.9 ; ; h _b = a = 200 ; ; T = fraction{ c h _c }{ 2 } ; ; h _c = fraction{ 2 T }{ c } = fraction{ 2 * 327389.68 }{ 3280 } = 199.63 ; ;

7. Calculation of the inner angles of the triangle - basic use of sine function

 sin alpha = fraction{ a }{ c } ; ; alpha = arcsin( fraction{ a }{ c } ) = arcsin( fraction{ 200 }{ 3280 } ) = 3° 29'45" ; ; sin beta = fraction{ b }{ c } ; ; beta = arcsin( fraction{ b }{ c } ) = arcsin( fraction{ 3273.9 }{ 3280 } ) = 86° 30'15" ; ; gamma = 90° ; ;

8. Inradius

T = rs ; ; r = fraction{ T }{ s } = fraction{ 327389.68 }{ 3376.95 } = 96.95 ; ;

9. Circumradius

R = fraction{ a }{ 2 * sin alpha } = fraction{ 200 }{ 2 * sin 3° 29'45" } = 1640 ; ;

10. Calculation of medians

m_a = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2c**2 - a**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 3273.9**2+2 * 3280**2 - 200**2 } }{ 2 } = 3275.424 ; ; m_b = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 c**2+2a**2 - b**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 3280**2+2 * 200**2 - 3273.9**2 } }{ 2 } = 1649.121 ; ; m_c = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2a**2 - c**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 3273.9**2+2 * 200**2 - 3280**2 } }{ 2 } = 1640 ; ;
